everywhere in this particular environment. because you have segments of high tech manufacturing. you have segments of innovative financial services. all of those types of businesses in this day and age need skilled productive talent. >> we don't know yet what's going to happen in the state of georgia, whether or not they will follow the lead of arizona and reject the pending legislation. but already we are seeing businesses like delta airlines and others try to distance themselves from what might happen in the state. how important is it for a company like delta to do that? >> well, delta's got a couple of different things at play here. there's lots of choice in airlines, right? and so they're in a very competitive business. they don't want to send the signal that they're aligned with the state, that is particularly unwelcoming or seems to be unwelcoming to certain individuals. and so that would be in the minds i'm sure of the management of delta. >> finally you've been crunching the numbers, doing the retch for a long time -- the research for a long time. more broadly speaking what might

of standards and we also see that there is no control environment in place. we had cyber hackers come in for up to two years to steal these coins buried not only did they still customer coins, but they still 100,000 coins specifically from the owner of gox. >> what is the likelihood that these people will ever get their money back? there is no regulation and there are no safeguards so why should they? >> right, that is the sad story. there is no consumer protection whatsoever. without that protection, these investors could lose everything. most probably they have lost everything. bitcoin itself is not traceable. once these transactions are done, they are irreversible. it's anonymous so clearly is hard to track down the culprits and it is hard to get the money back. seems that the most basic legal principle is virtually impossible because of the weight bitcoin is operating. there is no location in place for such currency. >> that's correct. there is no legal structure over the top of it as well as any sort of regulation over it. the chance of getting money act is quite low. what's interesting ab
water system, but in this ordinance along with the department of the environment they are in charge of working with city departments about the requirements of this ordinance to make sure that this is doable. >> good afternoon, supervisors cohen, chiu, [speaker not understood]. .public utilities commission. this legislation [speaker not understood] distribution of bottled water on city property is in [speaker not understood] and encouraging greater consumption of bottled water. -- of tap water, sorry. the drinking water provided by the sfpuc is among the purest, the cheapest to deliver and the best tasting water in the world. this legislation build upon the tap ordinance sponsored previously by supervisor chiu, mar, and [speaker not understood] joint tap program, golden tap initiative and drink tap in school. so, these programs, sfpuc in cooperation with other city departments and agencies has begun installing bottle filling stations and public spaces in schools throughout the city. san francisco is among the first cities in the united states to feature outdoor reusable bottle refill
to protect human rights and the environment. through our eight year old think outside the bottle campaign we've collaborated with over 140 cities, universities and many national parks to promote tap over bottled water. and san francisco will continue to play a lead role in this movement bypassing president chiu's ordinance. 2007, as supervisor mentioned, san francisco set a precedent for citieses across the u.s. by cutting spending on bottled water. we saved tax payers nearly $500,000 a year and underscored the importance of our public water system. supervisor chiu's ordinance build on that legacy by codifying this commitment into law and increasing access to public water on city property. it is an important step toward ensuring our community has access to choose clean and safe public water. and by reinvesting in and promoting public water over bottled water, san francisco will set an important example for other cities and people across the country. the bottled water industry has had misleading marketing [speaker not understood]. public water is much more regulated than bottled water and is

, effectively? >> well, it's hard. it's going to be a significant trading range environment. the market will correct back on a repeating basis. we'll get a period where the market doesn't accomplish a heck of a lot. that's all you should expect. >> you watched janet yellen yesterday. did he provide the confidence that you would have wanted? and the reason i ask is because historically, if you just do the math, every time we get a new chair in this role, we usually have some form of a correction within six months. and the question that i keep wondering is whether we have that correction or it's still to come. >> i think, you know, investors tend to react to the unexpected, not the expected. and yesterday, the messaging was steady as she goes. so i think for now, we're in good shape. the march meeting, unless data falls off the cliff, investors will expect and will treat another $10 billion in tapering to occur. so i think we hand off from bernanke to yellen in this case may be a little different. because she was pretty much on tune with the dovishness of the fed and there hasn't been a f
. in the current political environment, we are not likely to return to levels of spending favored by the most ardent proponents in organizations like aei, on the hill. the budget plan announced monday would provide more over the next five years. we think it is a realistic proposal that reflect strategic imperative as well as the resources the department might ,easonably expect to receive albeit with strong leadership and cooperation in the congress. they will help remedy some of the damage caused by sequestration. mitigate the impact of potential cuts in the future. if the 26 billion dollars provided by the administration's proposed opportunity growth and security fund is also approved for fy 2015, the military near-term readiness picture improves significantly. and associated proposals provide a sustainable path towards shaping -- fulfilling the president defense strategy. as the department assessed our strategic environment, we have drawn upon work from outside organizations. aei has made some important contributions to our understanding on all of these issues. i will dive into a couple of

agree that an environment of low rates, low interest rates, especially when it p prevails for a long time, and we have had a long period of low interest rates can give rise to behavior that poses threats to financial stability. and therefore we need to be looking at that very carefully. and we are doing so in a very thorough way, i believe. there are a number of things that we are monitoring. measures of asset prices and whether or not they appear to be diverging from historical norms. namely it's hard but trying to spot any asset price bubbles that might be emerging. we're looking at leverage, which build up in leverage can be very dangerous to the financial system and pose stability risks. we're looking at trends in leverage. we're looking at credit growth to see whether or not that has potentially worrisome trends. in addition to that we're looking the particularly through the stress tests at financial institutions and a low interest rate environment. we have to worry about whether or not they're appropriately dealing with interest rate risk ls. we have been looking at that and, i
